On Thursday 5 March 2020 the Onderwijsparade, Utrecht University’s annual education day, will take place. This year’s theme is Academic Education: What is the purpose?
Academic education: what is the purpose?
What is the purpose of the university? What do we expect from our students and what do students expect from their lecturers? Do we offer enough leeway for curiosity, for mistakes to be made? Join us in the debate about these topics!
Societal and philosophical perspective
Two keynote speakers will shed light on the topic: prof. Giselinde Kuipers (Sociology, Leuven) from a societal perspective, prof. René ten Bos from a philosophical perspective. Student responses will be given by faculty assessors Suzanne Akkerhuis and Merel Dekker.
